Open house collects input on Foothills

NANAIMO – Residents can learn more about the Lantzville Foothills Estates and offer feedback during an open house on April 21.

Lantzville residents can learn more about a housing development at an open house this month.

A town hall and open house will be held on the Lantzville Foothills Estates on April 21 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 257. The 730-hectare development was revived last year by Storm Mountain Development, also referred to as Lone Tree Properties. The company purchased Lone Tree and its assets – a parcel on the Foothills Estates – in 2012, and has since acquired the rest of the property. It’s now preparing to move forward with next steps in planning, design, engineering and approvals.

Mark Holland, new project manager for the Foothills neighbourhood, will be on hand with the project team to speak to residents and hold a formal presentation on the development.

The event runs from 4 to 9 p.m. The formal presentation will be at 7 p.m. with a town hall meeting immediately following.
